Nope, unfortunately the interior was dead on. The seats and materials are legit, but the design is nothing to write home about. I have a feeling however that when I buy one, I won't care.

Statements retracted. Plenty of similar design language across the board with all the other sharp edges. That vette is sex. Now if I hear that they got rid of the leaf spring crap and took the engine to 21st century, I'd be really happy.

Interior is hideous, but thats last on my list when car buying. That center armrest though is as big as the ones in trucks... I don't understand that.

My sentiment as well. The exterior is fantastic, the interior looks high quality but very 90's. It's hard to believe the GM "design clinic" found people preferring that interior to the one in Audi R8 2:1. But regardless, GM deserves a lot of credit for that exterior design.

Only a fool would say the leaf springs on the C5 & C6 are "crap". I hope they continue to use the transverse composite leafs and I hope they start using them on more GM cars. There will always be aftermarket coilover conversions available for track cars that don't need the suspension travel a street car (with a super low hood) needs.

1st time in my life i thought a Corvette looked good.

As an ex-pat from the UK, I don't like muscle cars at all and so i never got the appeal or related to the nostalgia.

The vette isn't a muscle car. It's one of the US's only sportscars (2 seats, built for speed/handling) with a history and motorsports pedigree. Muscle cars were family cars (coupes, sedans, wagons) with large factory engines.. next to zero handling pretension.

Don't care how refined you make old outdated tech, it's still old and outdated. They could get better results with newer stuff, even if they already get amazing results. They don't because old white guys don't care about that kinda stuff and anyone who is making a race car is just replacing it anyways. Make no mistake, it only does good because it comes with huge stock tires and a really low CG, which is 90% of handling performance. See that post about whatever squishy suspension car it was recently that was like .5 seconds off the gt3 or whatever. I think it was a Cadillac?

Finally, Chevy nixed those stupid side vents that where placed in front of the rear wheels. Function aside, I always thought Chevy should of found a better way to vent the rear wheels. I really like that they moved the Ugly obmination of a design rear break vents from in front of the rear wheels to on top of them. Such a cleaner idea. I always hated the C6 because of the stupid inlet. It just looks ugly and ruined the lines.




In my opinion: The only fault in Chevy's Design is the rear end. They tried to hard to mask the rear decks height. There is just to much black plastic... The thing could of used a couple more inches of paint.

You should only drive a plug in hybrid then because gasoline is old and outdated and LiPos are where it's at.

So I should get an FR-S and put 305s on it and then I can outhandle most supercars on the track? Or better yet, put airbags on a Buick so that I can scrape the frame and get tires that stick out 10 inches past the fenders to set the Nurburgring record?

So you're saying a Cadillac was half a second slower than a Porsche GT-3...isn't that, um...really good? In any category, whether it's 0-60, quarter mile, track lap, 0-100-0, half a second slower than a GT-3 would be awesome for a luxury car.

It was really good because they swapped the tires out before they handed it over to the testing people (autoblog or car & driver or whoever it was, I'm not finding the article, google it or something). The tires aren't an option on the car and the suspension on the car is ****, it's showing that a good set of big sticky tires will get you all the cornering performance you need (not necessarily straight line speed).

You wouldn't prefer a v8 with the same power/liter as bmw's m3? You wouldn't prefer actual unequal length double wishbone suspension setup? You really don't think they would make the car better?

WRX...

I for one, would love to see a car with double wishbones and a massive DOHC V8 hanging behind the front wheels out. Its just not going to happen in Chevy's case. In a sense they are just like Porsche. They have no desire to drop their DNA when it comes to drive-train. While Porsche does update its tech. They still stick with hanging the motor out its butt end. I imagine Chevy feels the same way with their leaf springs and outdated V8.While Chevy could easily adapt a better suspension and motor to their cars and it may even perform better on paper. I just don't see why the hell they should. The car does just fine with its current drive-train and performs on track with cars costing higher dollars.
